COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saison Rue is an unfiltered, bottle conditioned, Belgian/French-style farmhouse ale. This is a beer of subtlety and complexity, with malted rye, spicy, fruity yeast notes, biscuit-like malt backbone and a slight citrus hop character. With age, this beer will dry out and will become more complex with rustic notes of leather and earth from the contribution of a wild yeast strain. Being a saison, Saison Rue is ambiguous unto itself as it is a different beer when fresh and when aged.

Bomber. Pours a golden copper color with a creamy white head. Aromas of apple, spice, rye, and some yeast. Flavor is caramel, fruit, spice, and light rye. Mediumed bodied, light dry finish. There is just a hint of alcohol here too.

Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Smells funky with hints of stone fruits. Taste is funk, hay, white fruits and stone fruits. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and lively mouth-carbonation, Bruery Saison Rue finishes with a lingering subtle funk.

csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - JUL 12, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2008 750ml bottle brought by theisti. Served in a Chimy chalice. Aroma is spicy rye, light fruit (apple), spice (black pepper), light yeast and vanilla. The brett funkiness is pretty reserved, so much so that you might not pick it out of the aroma if you were not told. Taste is lightly kilned malt, light funk, apple/pear, peppery spice, yeast and vanilla. I gave the beer a swirl and got a huge amount of spearmint.

Draft at the source on 6/26/2016. Golden with a white head. Heavy lacing. Aroma is funk, wild yeast, some fruitiness. Taste is similar to nose, with some spiciness. A touch of white pepper. Overall, its a bit more bland than expected.

Bottle from misterburd -- cheers! I waited on this one about six months to let it develop. Disappointing: the brett and rye dont assert themselves much, and despite all of the complicated tasting notes this just tasted like kinda random, malty homebrew.

accidentally aged this for over 1.5 years. still a damn good beer; I dont care for the Brett and didnt really taste any - due to aging??. hazy gold color. aroma of spring and summer - citrus, flower, yeast, and slightest of funk. nice palate for style. taste is what gets this to a 4 - great balance of many many things going on here - citrus, Belgian yeast, funk, slightest of tartness, carbonation, yeast. love this!! thx to whomever/however I got this!

joshwilfong (1200) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2010
hazy golden with thick white head. flavor of tartness from the brett without classic saison yeasty esters. the brett muddles the style slightly, creating a brew that doesnt exactly work

Very fantastic and beautiful saison. Good crispness to balance out the traditional syrup that comes in "farmhouse" beers. This is a summer drinker despite its color. Highly recommended. Nice town name too... Placentia? Really?
